  3. 3. Question <ul><li>How does Pullman create a realistic world in his novel ‘ The Golden Compass ’? </li></ul>
  4. 4. Let’s have a look <ul><li>State Question . </li></ul><ul><li>Outline argument </li></ul><ul><li>Offer rationale . </li></ul><ul><li>This intro is very basic and a little short, but it leaves the reader knowing what to expect. </li></ul><ul><li>In ‘ The Golden Compass’ Pullman creates a realistic fantasy world. He does this by using an ‘alternate’ Earth, creating realistic characters that interact with the world and by describing, in detail, the world as it appears. Through this the reader is able to visualise each scene and ‘see’ the world. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Wat this intro suggests <ul><li>That you will speak about the similarities/ differences between Pullman’s Earth and the real Earth </li></ul><ul><li>The realistic characters – what they say/do ,the way they say it etc. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Now you try <ul><li>Question: Given some of Lyra’s traits, lying, stealing and causing trouble; is Lyra’s character trustworthy enough to have the power of the Alethiometer? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Lyra is not trustworthy enough to have the alethiometer. I think Lyra is too young and not responsible enough, she will use it in the wrong way as she is stubborn, lies, steals and is a troublemaker. These factors mean that Lyra is too immature and not trustworthy enough to own such a powerful device. </li></ul>
